The Phase 2 of Persian Gulf Star Refinery in the city of Bandar Abbas in southern Hormozgan Province, which is hailed as the Middle East's largest processing facility for gas condensate, was officially launched by President Hassan Rouhani on Thursday.
Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh, also present at the ceremony, said, "With the second phase becoming operational, the country has neared its goal of self-sufficiency in gasoline production," Shana reported.
The completion of the second phase raises its capacity by 120,000 barrels per day to 240,000 bpd, with the third phase expected to add another 120,000 bpd of capacity.
"Once in full swing, the star refinery will produce 36 ml/d of gasoline," he added.
